    For newsprint you should avoid rich black. This material is very absorbent and too much ink leads to oversaturated, smudged text.

    Really need to know what sort of print method and inks etc are being used.

    I run a flatbed UV printer, I print a 4 colour black on that running 10/10/10/100, rich & solid black, printing the same on a solvent printer I need to up it to about 20/15/15/100.

    Inklimits, UCR, profiles, media, temperature, humidity etc can all make differences to the end result.

    I presume your machine is calibrated, have you thought of just printing a eps test chart with vector & raster data to see what will work?

    Here is what I use, I can make the raw PS file available if you would like it.

    C 20 M 20 Y 20 K 100 is the standard four colour black
    C 30 M 10 Y 10 K 100 also works for bluer greys

    Pant is a bit more tricky, I'd go with a dark Cool Grey as Pant Black is really just the same black used in CMYK

    My experience: best rich black, offset & digital, C=30 M=40 Y=0 K=100.

    I use this for our rich black on the press. It is a pain for a printer to have to print 4 colour black on a press. Digital print is no issue.

    Never use 100 of all 4 colours the printer will go mad and the drying will take forever.

    we use the breakdown c20 m20 y20 k100 for rich black and it looks good.
    but if for digital printing, don't know y....this breakdown will turn out to be dark gray...so for DP, i will keep 100% black
